Over the past few years, several types of Disney merchandise have gained a cult-like following — things like spirit jerseys and Loungefly backpacks. Maybe one of the more surprising pieces of popular merchandise is Disney popcorn buckets. From Mickey Mummy popcorn buckets to ones that look like the famous Mickey balloons to ones exclusively for Annual Passholders, Disney is designing popcorn buckets to cover nearly every Disney, Pixar, and Star Wars fandom. They even created a Figment popcorn bucket for last year’s International Festival of the Arts — and people waited in 5 hours lines to get their hands on it!
Now, the Christmas season at Disney Parks is less than a week away, and Disney Imagineers and Cast Members are hard at work turning the Parks into magical wintry worlds. Every year, as part of the holiday celebration, Disney releases specialty popcorn buckets. Sometimes it’s a Christmas tree or jingle bells in the shape of a Mickey head. But this year, Disney is going all out and treating a truly unique popcorn bucket.
This year, Disney will be creating a musical popcorn bucket! Complete with images that move around the bucket! Disney Parks and Disney Eats shared a video of the gorgeous bucket on Instagram.
We’re not trying to be corny but we really need this musical holiday popcorn tin! 😄 Available at select popcorn carts at @waltdisneyworld and @disneyland starting Nov.11. 🍿 #DisneyEats #Popcorn

This new Christmas popcorn bucket will be released at both Disneyland and Walt Disney World Resort beginning December 11. In the past, popcorn buckets have sold out in just a couple of days. So, if you plan to be in the Parks on November 11, we recommend getting in line as soon as possible if you want to make this popcorn bucket a part of your collection.
At this time, the popcorn buckets will only be available at select popcorn carts throughout Disneyland and Walt Disney World. Disney has not said if they will be available for mobile order at certain locations.
